About this blog

Translator's Shack is a collection of links, news, reviews and opinions about translation technologies. It's edited and updated by Roberto Savelli, an English to Italian translator, project manager and company owner of Albatros Soluzioni Linguistiche, a team of English-Italian translators, which hosts and supports this blog.

The Life as a PM category, managed by Gabriella Ascari, contains topics that are less technical in nature, but which we're sure will be appreciated by owners of small translation businesses and freelancers.

Here are links to my pages on some social networks:

L10NWorks offers a good selection of web-based and downloadable localization tools


The Tools section of the L10NWorks website contains a wealth of free resources for translation and localization professionals.

L10NWorks The list is neatly divided into logical categories such as Encoding, QA Tools, etc. and is easy to navigate. Some of the tools do not need any download or install: You upload your data (the site promises not to retain or use it in any way) and let the programs process it. Once the procedure is complete, you can download the modified data for reuse in your projects. Tools that need a local PC for processing can be easily downloaded and installed with a simple click.

imageEach single tool contains specific sub-sections with brief instructions, a feedback form that allows users to rate the tool, and some information about the tool’s author.

All in all a very useful, easy to navigate site which I hope will be kept up to date as new tools are created or improved.
